2010 Digital Calendar photo description 

"Wild Dog Antics"
Late afternoon in the Mashatu Game Reserve, Botswana, a pack of Wild Dogs rushed down to the river to splash, play and frolic about. These two dogs engaged in a

bout of mock attacks on each other


Wild Dog or Cape Hunting Dog -Lycaon pictus

The Latin for Wild Dog is Lycaon pictus  or "Painted Wolf" with good reason. Like the Wolf, the Wild Dog

is a nomad and a formidable pack hunter. Unlike its distant relative, each Wild Dog has a distinctive

pattern of black, orange-brown and white markings, so that no two Wild Dogs are the same, the only common

feature being its white tail tip. The Wild Dog is one of the most maligned creatures of the wild.

Whereas the species formerly occurred extensively throughout Southern Africa, it is now the only

endangered species of canid in the region. In truth, Wild Dogs live an exemplary and democratic domestic life.
